My mind’s made up 

I can’t thank y’all enough for your thoughtful comments on yesterday’s post. I’ve come to a decision.

I’m going to stick with the biopsy Monday. 

It was so so hard to give up the opportunity to transfer. But at the end of the day I understood what all of you were saying. And the reality is those 6 embryos are my little (potential) babies and as their mom I at least owe it to them to give them as much information as I can and to provide them with the best possible environment. 

So, biopsy Monday (ugh) and natural cycle in Dec for a planned FET January. I so appreciate every one of you. 

The Personal is Political

This is an infertility blog. But oh well, it’s mine.

I have had a lot of loss this year. Most of it fertility related- yall already know that. I lost my grandmother too. Two weeks ago I lost my cat- he was with me for more than half my life. He was 18 and my parents had to put him down.

But today is another loss. And it is hitting me just as hard as many of those other losses that have happened. Those that are more personal.

But isn’t this personal? That people selected a man bragging about sexual assault over the first female president?

Its going to be okay. 65.6 million people voted against him in some way, either for Hillary, Johnson, Stein, or a write-in. Millions more were against than for.

I was planning on writing on update about my ERA biopsy sometime soon.

But what has just happened? It is a loss in my heart, too.
